You will add the hashtag that matches the challenge you are submitting to qualify to win the prize for that challenge. Feel free to use other hashtags as well such as #CreativeMemories, but BE SURE to include #CMDigitalVCNov1, #CMDigitalVCNov2, etc., so we can find your post. For Instagram users, you will need to add #CMDigitalVCNov1, #CMDigitalVCNov2, #CMDigitalVCNov3, etc., so your post can be found that way.

The Prize for All 5 Challenges

The prize for all five challenges of the Virtual Crop: Digital Edition will be a COUPON to print your Custom Album Cover OR Custom Refill Pages OR a Complete Custom Album for FREE — it will be your choice from these three options! We award one (1) prize for each challenge randomly, but we make sure that all the challenge requirements have been met first (i.e., that the sketch was followed and that it uses CM products).

And that’s not all — we’ll also award one BONUS winner who creates a project using the Merry Blooms Digital Artwork or Custom Theme (part of our current Black Friday Promo).
